Re: more and more and more solarplate

Keith--- Interesting about the washout time.  I can't remember though what you had been using as washout time...?

Chris--- I've been doing the screen first a la Jon's technique.  I can't figure out theoretically speaking, how it could make a difference. Light is light.  But then with these processes... sometimes it seems not so simple, huh?

I always expose the screen first, but have always believed that it
makes no difference which order they're exposed in.

Also, I exposed a plate and tried Jon's method of a 35sec washout
recently and was really impressed with the results. It seemed
inconceivable that such a short washout would produce even
development, but I may just have to change my procedure after seeing
these results!

She does the aquatint exposure second.  Anyone do that?
She powders the positive, not the plate; anyone do that?
